Greek billionaire offers snippets of financial wisdom

first_imgHe may have built a property empire worth more than $1 billion dollars, but Con Makris still remains a regular, hard-working man who doesn’t forget his origins. In an interview with the Australian Financial Review, the billionaire expressed his distrust towards the share market, his disappointment in a large part of Australian youth, that he describes as “bludgers”, his agreement with Malcolm Turnbull’s views, while offering advice to prospective investors – which can be summed up in one phrase: work hard and stay away from “paper money”. The first Greek migrant to reach billionaire status in Australia, Con Makris expressed his sadness over the plight of Greek people, suffering from the ongoing financial crisis, predicting a long, painful road to recovery. “Greece is a magnificent place that needs a good, strong government,” he said, stating that focus on infrastructure and tourism is crucial for the country’s return to growth. Placed at No. 47 on the Business Review Weekly Rich 200 list, Makris – who arrived in Australia from Greece when he was 16 years old – built his wealth from very modest beginnings, running barbecue chicken shops. Early in his business career he developed a strong work ethic from which he has never deviated. He started off working seven days a week for up to 14 hours a day, expanding his business to property development and shopping centre ownership. Since his phenomenal rise in the 1980s, mostly in South Australia and Queensland, he has remained a firm believer in the fundamentals of investing in bricks and mortar in the right locations, and picking trends that will ensure the values of those commercial properties and shopping centres continue to rise.‘NOBODY LOSES ON LAND’As for his well-documented aversion to the share market, it is due to the volatile nature of shares. To him, the increasingly complex world of derivatives, hedge fund trading and short selling exacerbates the extreme fluctuations and can mean that vast amounts of share market wealth on paper can go up in smoke in a short space of time. “I never follow paper money”, he told the Australian Financial Review, adding: “Why buy shares? It’s crazy. Nobody loses on land.” An advocate of the security of bricks and mortar, Makris insists that location is still the single biggest factor that will add value over the long term, as it has been doing for the past five decades. According to him, this principle will survive even as the Australian economy continues to strive for the next couple of years. Asked to comment on the increases in interest rates, he told the AFR that there will inevitably be some fall-out among those who’ve borrowed too heavily to fund projects, but most business people and property owners enter transactions with long-term horizons. “The whole world is working on the basis that there won’t be inflation but things can change quickly,” he said.The richest man in South Australia also expressed his support for Malcolm Turnbull, who “is a businessman and he understands what needs to happen to get things moving”. The prime minister’s call for innovation is seen by the billionaire as a move towards building an entrepreneurial culture in Australia. However any effort to rebuild confidence after the decline of the mining industry is bound to meet a very specific obstacle: young Australians, who have lost their work ethic, nurtured by the state to being used to a “hand-out mentality”. “The country has been breeding bludgers,” he says bluntly. “Too many people are looking for a lifestyle. They want to go to Byron Bay and those sort of places and sit in the sun all day.”INVESTING IN NORTH ADELAIDEDespite being South Australia’s richest man, Makris won’t rest on his laurels. He is about to start work on a $200 million development which will include a 160-room Sheraton hotel along with residential apartments, retail space and offices. It’s all located on a prominent site in affluent North Adelaide which has been vacant since 1989. The billionaire believes that the suburb’s time has finally arrived and describes North Adelaide as the equivalent of Toorak in Melbourne, and similar to Woollahra in Sydney. It is a suburb just one kilometre from the central business district, but the catalyst for the development has been the $535 million redevelopment of the Adelaide Oval, which now hosts Australian Football League matches for the first time since 1974, and was the location for the first day/night cricket test with the infamous pink ball in late November when Australia played New Zealand.The oval is within walking distance of the new $200 million Sheraton development, with regular AFL crowds of 50,000 spilling into the nearby suburbs and the CBD, where dozens of new small bars have opened up as the state government relaxed liquor licensing laws. Makris is a firm supporter of such pro-business measures and points out a policy applied by South Australian Treasurer Tom Koutsantonis. He brought forward the first tranche of stamp duty cuts on commercial properties in early December, 2015 with immediate effect, switching from an original plan where those stamp duties would be shaved by one-third in mid-2016, with the next third sliced in mid-2017 followed by full abolishment in mid-2018. “I think it’s a very smart move,” Makris told the AFR.Source: Fairfax Media Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

LinkedIn le FBI enquête sur le piratage du réseau social

first_imgLinkedIn : le FBI enquête sur le piratage du réseau socialSuite au vol de quelque 6,5 millions de mots de passe chiffrés sur son serveur, le réseau social professionnel LindedIn se voit apporter l’aide du FBI, qui vient d’ouvrir une enquête. Le site a lui-même révélé cette information, au sujet de laquelle le service fédéral américain se refuse toutefois à tout commentaire.A l’instar du site de rencontre eHarmony, le réseau social professionnel LinkedIn a été victime d’un vaste piratage. Quelque 6,5 millions de passe ont été dérobés et circulent aujourd’hui sur Internet. Une affaire prise très au sérieux par le FBI, avec lequel LinkedIn a annoncé avoir entamé une collaboration.Si le service fédéral américain refuse d’évoquer cette enquête, un porte-parole du réseau social, cité par Reuters, affirme qu’aucun des millions de compte concernés par ce vol n’a pour l’heure été détourné, à sa connaissance du moins. L’enquête vient d’être lancée, et pour le moment, a précisé le porte-parole, on ignore si les adresses des boîtes mails liées aux mots de passe dérobés ont elles aussi été volées. Mais LinkedIn tente de rassurer ses utilisateurs – ils sont 161 millions à travers le monde – et s’est engagé à désactiver tous les mots de passe victimes de ce piratage. Les internautes sont alors invités à les changer en suivant une procédure qui leur a été envoyée par mail par le réseau social. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Vivement critiqué quant à sa sécurité suite à ce vol massif – certains experts dénoncent des lacunes en matière de protection des données des membres de LinkedIn – le porte-parole de la société a promis que de nouvelles mesures avaient d’ores et déjà été prises pour y remédier. “La sécurité des données de nos membres est pour nous de la plus haute valeur” a-t-il assuré. L’enquête conjointement menée par LinkedIn et le FBI devrait en plus de déterminer l’ampleur exacte du piratage, permettre de savoir s’il est ou non lié à celui du site eHarmony, qui s’est vu voler 1,5 million de codes d’accès, comme à celui de Last.fm, également victime de la fuite de milliers de mots de passe. Pour l’heure, aucune preuve ne vient étayer l’hypothèse fort probable selon laquelle ces attaques puissent être le fait d’un seul et même pirate, ou groupe de hackers.Le 8 juin 2012 à 17:30 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Dwell Media Sells Flagship Event to Informa

first_img Dwell on Design, which attracts 30,000 attendees and orbits around a 300,000 square foot show floor, launched in 2006 in Los Angeles. Dwell Media introduced a second event in New York last fall, but the Informa deal reveals the company’s primary strategy for the brand—international expansion. Events have been a reliable and growing revenue platform for publishers, which has also made them an attractive target for buyers. Exact terms of the deal were not immediately known, but Dwell is characterizing it as a “multi-million dollar” sale.   Rick McConnell, who formerly led the exhibition division at Hanley Wood, is now the president of the Informa U.S. group. This also marks at least the third time Informa has convinced a U.S. media company to part with a key event portfolio—a few months before it bought the Hanley Wood events, Informa bought Virgo Publishing to establish an event position in the U.S. “It has long been the plan for Dwell on Design to include international arms of what is truly America’s largest design event,” said Dwell President and CEO Michela O’Connor Abrams. “Paramount to achieving that level of growth was finding the right partner. I am confident that we have done just that with Informa Exhibitions U.S., Construction and Real Estate, and that Rick McConnell and his team will make Dwell on Design the largest must-see design event worldwide.”center_img Why Dwell went as far as selling the event to accomplish that was not exactly clear. Informa rebranded the Hanley Wood group of events, which target the real estate, design and construction markets, Informa Exhibitions U.S., Construction and Real Estate, and it’s under that grouping that Dwell on Design will be located. U.K.-based information and events company Informa has been making an aggressive push into the U.S. trade show market. Late last year, it purchased Hanley Wood’s exhibition business for $375 million. Today, the company announced it bought design event Dwell on Design from Dwell Media. Under terms of the deal, the content portion of the event will continue to be handled by Dwell Media, with executive vice president of content Amanda Dameron heading up the editorial team.last_img read more

Fitness enthusiast Vasu Mittal opens up on use of steroids in bodybuilding

first_imgVasu MittalPR HandoutSocial media Influencer and entrepreneur, Vasu Mittal- CEO & Founder of VM Nutrition, has been into the fitness industry for a quite long time now. He has tansformed more than 1000 people and is the youngest most featured Indian on International pages.Talking about his fitness journey, Vasu says, “It all started in summer 2011 when my father asked me to do a few push-ups in my room and I remember I failed terribly. I literally couldn’t do one. However, the drive and my willingness to improve kept making me try everyday. I really wanted a change but everything was very challenging since I was a 90 pound skinny guy who had no strength whatsoever. Initially when I started training, everyone told me I was wasting my time — ‘as if you’re gonna get big’. To be honest, my goal was never to look muscular or even stand out as that was something that I thought I could never achieve. I just wanted to look normal, as I was often been told ‘you have to eat, you have nothing in your body’.””Regardless of that situation I had perseverance and willpower to do things. I kept on trying and I kept on getting better. I fell in love with it and my passion grew crazy. Later, my father got me a pair of dumbbells to do even more and then a gym membership since I was really keen to continue this as my lifestyle. It has been 8 years now and honestly it’s incredible to watch this journey unfold in front of my eyes,” adds Mittal.Ask him about the use of steroids in body building, he says, “Steroids are a part of professional bodybuilding and we can’t deny it. You need to go down that road if you really wish to compete and appear that level of lean and freaky. What saddens me is the casual use at the gyms with absolute no knowledge of anything. Local trainers brainwashing teenagers that you have to have this instead of teaching them right nutrition, training, and principles. Just for the sake of few bucks, they are deteriorating health and playing with lives. I know in today’s world everybody wants everything instant but you gonna be smart enough to understand that it’s not possible through right means. If something’s going up too fast, it surely is gonna hit ground too soon. People need to understand that steroids are serious and you cannot just take them and say ‘oh I know how to wash out’, that’s bullshit. I always say direction is much more important than speed and many are going nowhere. Achieving an aesthetically pleasing physique is absolutely possible naturally if you work hard and be patient.”last_img read more

Angry Birds in real life complete with exploding pigs

first_imgThere has been a lot of Angry Birds news recently with the Beach Volley update to Angry Birds Rio, and the exciting news of Angry Birds coming to the Web via Google Chrome (complete with all levels unlock) to show off just how fast the browser really is. There was also a nice cover created recently of the catchy Angry Birds Theme done hipster-style, but perhaps even better than that is the live band that plays the theme song during a real-life Angry Birds game.Rovio built a life-sized version of Angry Birds, which it constructed at the Plaça Nova de Terrassa in Terrassa, Spain. Built to promote Deutsche Telekom AG, a German telecommunications company, the real-life Angry Birds level is complete with Papier-mâché pigs that literally explode when hit by a bird. There was obviously some major production that went into creating this. The Angry Birds set looks to be at least three stories high. It’s so large that a man literally has to sit  in a crane to play as he blows up the pigs, which explode all over the square in tiny pieces.AdChoices广告There are sure to be Angry Bird addicts out there who have dreamed of exploding green pigs in real life. Though the construction was built just for this ad, it would be interesting if Rovio could take it on tour around the world. True, the company doesn’t need to promote the game any more than it already has. It is the No. 1 paid iPhone app in dozens of countries, including the U.S, afterall. Still, I’m sure people would flock from all over to see Angry Birds in action.Although the scale of this game puts it out of reach as a weekend project, you could always create a smaller version that doubles as a cake.via Pocket-lintlast_img read more

Trade War Heats Up Again As China Sets Tariffs

first_img Greg Baker Trade War Heats Up Again As China Sets Tariffs On $75… by NPR News Avie Schneider 8.23.19 11:26am Updated at 11:19 a.m. ETChina says it will slap tariffs on autos, auto parts and thousands of other U.S. goods worth a total of $75 billion. President Trump promised to respond. Friday’s announcement by China marks an escalation in a trade war that has rippled through the world economy and raised fears of a U.S. recession.The first batch of tariffs will go into effect Sept. 1, and a second, on autos and auto parts, is due to go into effect Dec. 15. The tariffs range from 5% to 25%.President Trump tweeted that he “will be responding to China’s Tariffs this afternoon.” “My only question is, who is our bigger enemy, Jay Powell or Chairman Xi?” Trump said, referring to the Federal Reserve Chairman, whom he’s been urging to cut interest rates, and China’s leader.Trump said the United States has lost “stupidly” trillions of dollars to China over the years, citing the theft intellectual property. “We don’t need China and, frankly, would be far better off without them,” he said.Trump said U.S. firms doing business with China should look elsewhere.”Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies HOME and making your products in the USA,” he said. China’s finance ministry called the new tariffs “a forced move to deal with U.S. unilateralism and trade protectionism.” U.S. stock markets fell sharply after Trump’s tweets on China. The Dow Jones Industrial Average opened down about 300 points, or 1% in late morning trading.Earlier this month, the Trump administration postponed until Dec. 15 new 10% tariffs on some imports from China that were due to take effect Sept. 1. They were part of a new set of tariffs on $300 billion worth of goods that triggered a sharp selloff in the U.S. stock market. President Trump said the delay was intended to ease the effect on U.S. consumers during the holiday shopping season.Last September, China set tariffs on $60 billion in U.S. goods in retaliation for U.S. duties.The $75 billion in goods affected by China’s latest tariffs would represent more than 60% of the $120.3 billion worth of U.S. goods exported to China last year.U.S. and Chinese negotiators are due to meet in September for a new round of trade talks but have not yet confirmed a date.NPR’s Emily Feng contributed to this report.Copyright 2019 NPR.

I don’t blame you — a lot of the budget devices we review are full of compromises.However, every now and then we receive a low-priced laptop that punches well above its weight. That’s what Laptop Mag reader sujjoooo is looking for: a sub-$400 laptop or 2-in-1 that can provide reliable performance.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

This clamshell laptop (sorry, no touch screen) has excellent battery life at nearly 9 hours, and its wide variety of ports means you won’t ever need a dongle. There are always going to be trade-offs when you’re on a budget. With the Aspire E 15, those include the laptop’s relatively large chassis and the unfortunate amount of bloatware you’ll want to uninstall.If you want something sleeker that can fit into a small backpack, then Acer also offers the Swift 1. This $329 laptop won’t give you the same performance as the Aspire E 15, but it’s a much more portable device, coming in at just 2.9 pounds and 0.6-inches thin. Like the Aspire E 15, the Swift 1 has an excellent selection of ports, and it has even longer endurance than its chunkier sibling, lasting more than 10 hours on a charge. My biggest complaint with the Swift 1 is that, while it does come with a sharp 1080p display, the panel isn’t very colorful.Best 2-in-1s Under $400Want a 2-in-1? Acer has you covered there as well. The Aspire 1 is one of our favorite 2-in-1 laptops because of its sleek design, sharp display and attractive looks. However, you’ll need to haul around a charger since it only lasted six and a half hours on our battery test.Another budget 2-in-1 worth considering is the Lenovo Flex 6 11. That is, so long as its smaller, 11-inch display isn’t a deal-breaker. This bendback 2-in-1 lasts for more than 9 hours on a charge and has a comfortable keyboard, making it a great choice for students and travelers. Apart from its small display, the laptop’s biggest shortcoming is that its screen is rather dull.If you prefer a convertible tablet, then buy the Microsoft Surface Go. This $399 tablet has a stunning display and offers strong performance for the price. You also get the convenience of Windows Hello facial recognition login, which will save you a few seconds every time you use the device.  Despite all of its merits, I’m hesitant to recommend the Surface Go to our reader because it’s only a true 2-in-1 once you purchase the $99 keyboard accessory, which brings the grand total to $498. Ouch.Also Consider ChromebooksAlternatively, our reader could purchase one of several great Chromebooks. The Samsung Chromebook 3, a very inexpensive option ($179!), has strong performance, a surprisingly great display, and very long battery life. However, if our reader can scrounge up a bit more cash, then they should spring for our favorite overall Chromebook: The $449 Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA, a 2-in-1 with a gorgeous display, an aluminum chassis and good battery life.Credit: Laptop MagBest Acer LaptopsBest Asus LaptopsBest Lenovo Laptopslast_img read more

Opera 50 with Crypto Mining Protection

first_imgOpera 50 with Crypto Mining Protection by Martin Brinkmann on December 22, 2017 in Opera – 16 commentsOpera 50, the next stable version of the Opera web browser, comes with cryptocurrency mining protection to block mining scripts on sites automatically.Crypto mining using JavaScript is a relatively new phenomenon. This cryptocurrency mining method received some bad press because it was abused by a number of sites.What’s meant by that is that sites ran mining operations in JavaScript on their sites, and that users who connected to these sites had their resources used without them giving their okay or having options to reduce the impact the mining had on their devices.Some sites did not limit the resource use at all, and users experienced their device’s cpu load going up to 100% the moment they connected to these sites. Even worse, some used technology to continue mining operations even after the site is exited or the browser window closed.Malwarebytes discovered one method that sites abused to do so. Basically, what sites in question did was launch a popunder that would fit right under the taskbar of the operation system so that it was difficult to spot by the user.Opera 50 will ship with anti-crypto mining support. Opera Software loads the NoCoin list if ad blocking is enabled in the browser, and that list powers the protection.As you may know, Opera browser is one of the few browsers with integrated ad-blocking. You can load opera://settings to manage the blocking of ads in the browser.If you have enabled the preference “block ads and surf the web up to three times faster”, you should see NoCoin (Cryptocurrency Mining Protection) under recommended lists. Note that it may take a moment before the entry is added after you enable the ad blocking in Opera.All lists are loaded from Opera servers anonymously. You cannot open the list in the browser’s interface, but can check out which sites and resources are on the NoCoin list on the project’s GitHub page.The NoCoin list can be loaded into most ad-blocking extensions such as Adblock Plus and uBlock Origin.Closing WordsThe abuse of JavaScript mining by sites has reduced the chance of this ever becoming a feasible option for webmasters and site owners to monetize their sites. A site that wants to use mining ethically, by asking users or providing a clearly visible toggle at the very least, will have the reach of that option cut by a large percentage because of the use of anti-mining lists by ad-blocking extensions.I’m not saying that mining is feasible for most sites, as you need a lot of users to make this a viable alternative to advertisement even with all the issues that advertising faces.SummaryArticle NameOpera 50 with Crypto Mining ProtectionDescriptionOpera 50, the next stable version of the Opera web browser, comes with cryptocurrency mining protection to block mining scripts on sites automatically.

Ivory Coast exiles in Ghana campaign for Gbagbo

first_img Top holiday drink recipes The leaders of the urban refugees deny the allegations. In recent interviews, most exiles said their days were largely spent in front of their laptops, reading and responding to news from their home country while living off money sent from supporters overseas.Ahoua Don Mello, a former Gbagbo spokesman who is under an international arrest warrant, said this online outreach helps the exiles in Accra maintain their standing as “the central leaders” of the former president’s supporters – a feat made easier because what remains of Gbagbo’s political party in Abidjan is very weak.The role the exiles play in shaping public opinion is clear. Ever since Gbagbo was transferred to the International Criminal Court one year ago, his high-level allies have insisted that reconciliation can only happen if the court releases him immediately – something that is practically inconceivable.Matt Wells, West Africa researcher at Human Rights Watch, said making reconciliation conditional upon Gbagbo’s release shows the exiles’ “refusal to acknowledge the grave crimes committed by pro-Gbagbo forces during the crisis.” Nonetheless, this line has been adopted by many ordinary Gbagbo supporters in Ivory Coast and Ghana. In person, Zeguen’s rhetoric is even more extreme. “We want Ouattara to die,” said the 68-year-old, who is on a European Union sanctions list for his role in the conflict. “And if I get him in front of me I can cut his neck.”Nearly 1,000 Gbagbo supporters currently live in Accra, according to the Ghana Refugee Board. Known as “urban refugees” because they live outside refugee camps, they include ex-combatants like Zeguen, political leaders and former high-level government officials, most of whom fled to Ghana in the weeks after Gbagbo was arrested in April 2011.Their anti-Ouattara vitriol – delivered in a steady stream of press statements, blog posts, tweets and newspaper articles – threaten Ivory Coast’s reconciliation, say analysts.“The exiles are working to prevent” national reconciliation with messages that “sustain doubts about Ouattara’s legitimacy in the minds of all those who previously supported and may continue to view Laurent Gbagbo as Ivory Coast’s rightful president,” said Joseph Hellweg, an Ivory Coast expert at Florida State University.In recent months, the Gbagbo loyalists have come under greater scrutiny, with Ouattara’s administration accusing them of coordinating roughly 10 attacks on military positions within Ivory Coast since early August. Last month, a United Nations experts’ report also accused them of coordinating the violence, claiming they had tried to recruit Islamist fighters in northern Mali, among others, to their cause. Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project The vital role family plays in society 0 Comments   Share   Hellweg at Florida State said this frustration would likely become more widespread over time, hurting the exiles’ ability to influence the debate over reconciliation.“The longer that Ouattara can maintain power, the harder it will be for the exiles to effect change, as their resources will eventually diminish and their authority among their Ivorian fellow travelers will diminish due to distance,” Hellweg said. “Time, in other words, is on Ouattara’s side.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Associated PressACCRA, Ghana (AP) – Moussa Toure Zeguen, an aging militia leader and longtime backer of former Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo, spends most of his time in exile online, drafting missive after missive to rewrite the history of his country’s recent post-election violence.A six-page “press statement” sent out by Zeguen last month shows just how much his take differs from the standard version of events. Whereas the international community saw now-President Alassane Ouattara as the undisputed winner of the November 2010 election, Zeguen’s statement describes the campaign to install him in office – part of months of violence that claimed at least 3,000 lives – as a “military coup” led by colonial power France. Zeguen derides Ouattara as a foreigner, a “Western puppet” and a financier of rebellions. Top Stories Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Zeguen, the aging ex-combatant, is widely regarded as the leader of the exiles’ propaganda campaign. His lengthy diatribes routinely get picked up by pro-Gbagbo newspapers in Ivory Coast, which are owned and controlled by the former president’s inner circle.In its sanctions notice against him, the EU said Zeguen’s writings reflected “a strong logic of conflict and armed revenge,” noting that his blog often “violently calls for the mobilization of the Ivorian people against Ouattara.”However, there are some indications that the exiles are losing sway, even over those who share their politics. Some residents of the Ampain refugee camp, the largest camp for Ivorians in Ghana, accuse them of needlessly stoking animosity between the pro-Ouattara and pro-Gbagbo camps, thereby delaying the refugees’ eventual return home.“Those refugees who are living in Accra, they are free. But here, we are not free,” said one refugee who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals. “We don’t have money. There are so many problems here. In Accra, they say they are refugees but they are free to do anything they want.” Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Sponsored Stories last_img read more
